Trial and error initially. No one I'm aware of has tried a ratio 
higher than 5:1 -- that works well and has very little tail effect. 
It behaves almost like straight H.  Lower ratios have a longer more 
pronounced tail -- some people tailor this to suit their particular 
digestive needs if they have gastro problems. Since it is believed 
that only small amounts of another insulin are needed to counter the 
"mystery" reaction, there is not much point in using more regular 
insulin than is necessary to do the job. In a regular 3ml syringe 
this works out easily to 50 u of R or V and 250 u of H -- easy to 
remember and load into the syringe.
